When you start building a custom home, it is hard not to get carried away thinking about all the things you want in it. Well, that is something that everyone experiences, so why not share some ideas!

If you have never built before, you don’t really know what you want, or you might have built before but don’t remember what you liked about the process. In this guide, we’ll help you learn more ways in which you can make your home look and feel different. 

1) Leaving Space Under the Stairs

That space under the stairs is one of the most underrated areas of the house. Before you start building your home, you might want to consider leaving a small space under the stairs. That way, you can easily add use it for a number of things.

For example, you can build a small room for your kids who might want a quiet space to read a book or pay for homework. You can also use the space for extra storage. Instead of building extra storage space in the garage, you can use that space under the stairs.

2) Creating a Mudroom

Mudrooms are becoming more and more popular. It is a small room that sits before your garage. It has been built in homes to allow people to take their shoes off before they walk into the rest of the house.

However, you can use the mudroom for more than that. For example, you can build a small closet into the room. Then, you can use the room for a small office instead of setting up an office inside the house. The mudroom is also a great place to hang coats and a room where you can store your shoes.

3) Walk-In Rooms

The size of the home is one of the most important things that you should consider when you decide to build one. The larger the home, the more space you have, and the more room you have to make the house as comfortable as you want it.

However, you also need to think about the area. When you look at homes that have a hard time selling, you will see that many of them are quite large for their price range. When you build a home that is quite large, you need to keep that in mind and make sure it has a basement.

4) Incorporate Home Security

Once you start building the home, you need to think about home security. You should, at least, think about putting alarms in the home. That way, you don’t have to worry about people trespassing into your home.

You should also think about having security cameras in your home. While they can be a bit of an eyesore, they are also very useful. For example, if you have a security camera, you can see it when someone is around the home. If you have an alarm system with cameras, you will be able to see when someone is trying to break into your home.


Building your own home is a great experience, and it is also a long and difficult process. If you want to make your house look and feel even better, the abovementioned are just some of the things you can do.
